800 paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division of the U.S. Army departed from Fort Bragg in North Carolina last Friday morning for a Swift Response exercise.

Baltic States are the territories of geopolitical games

By Adomas Abromaitis on Thursday, May 13, 2021

The large scope of military exercises which NATO conducts today is not only a signal to its opponent, Russia, but also the attempts of the Alliance to keep interest of its member states and justify its existence. Such political and military organization like NATO cannot work without reforms and transformations. So, NATO finds new territories to train its new initiatives and gain a foothold in new places.

By Kasparas Jankauskas on Thursday, May 6, 2021

Lithuania tends to be ambitious, desiring to become NATO’s main center in the Baltic region. In April Lithuania proposed NATO to provide a Membership Action Plan to Ukraine, thus allowing the country to become a member of the Alliance in future. As a mediator, Lithuania assumes overwhelming obligations to provide assistance to Ukraine for Ukraine’s entry into NATO. Lithuania will help Ukraine adapt to NATO standards, but despite Kiev’s loud…

By Jonas Dringelis on Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Lithuania keeps up policy of militarization of the country, increasing the total area of military training grounds to 1.2 percent of the territory of the country. Unfortunately, the Lithuanian leadership did not manage to avoid a conflict with the residents of the Jonava region in Lithuania, where the Gaižiūnai military training ground is located. There is one of the largest continental dunes in the Dumsiai forest. This is a unique…

Poland’s Constitution under siege

By Judy Dempsey on Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Poland and the EU are locked in a bitter battle over the rule of law. At stake is something so fundamental to both sides: the meaning and exercise of sovereignty. It was a remarkable document for its time. 230 years ago, the Polish-Lithuanian Sejm rushed through a hastily drawn-up bill. It was radical in its content, political in its goal, and emotional in its execution. The bill in question was…

It is well known that the largest NATO exercise “Defender Europe 21”, will soon take place in Europe. The upcoming exercise will cover…

The Global Elite’s Coup d’Etat that Is Destroying Life as We Know It

By Robert J. Burrowes on Monday, May 3, 2021

Politically savvy individuals know that democracy has rarely existed and probably never outside small groups of humans who deliberately organize themselves to share power or grant it temporarily to one or a small number of people for a particular purpose. In most contexts, ‘democracy’ is simply a label used to deceive the unwary into believing that ordinary people have a say in how we are governed. But this has never…

NATO’s Kings of the world in the Baltic States and Poland

By Jonas Dringelis on Friday, April 30, 2021

A U.S. Army Apache helicopter unit’s planned visit in September to World War II sites in Gdansk (Poland) devolved into a drunken escapade at an off-limits strip club, leading to the suspected drugging of a battalion executive officer who went missing and wasn’t found until the next day, an U.S. Army investigation found. The incident involving the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade’s “No Mercy” battalion during its recent deployment to Europe…

Shocking results of survey in Lithuania

By Adomas Abromaitis on Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Lithuanian authorities in recent future could face harsh criticism from society and disagreement with current foreign and domestic policies. The recent opinion poll has become the clear indicator of people’ dissatisfaction with government’s policy which resulted in loss of sovereignty of the country. Lithuanian analysts were very confused with the results of the latest survey. On November 7-30, 2020, a representative survey was conducted by the company Baltijos tyrimai: 1004…

Why NATO is dangerous for the Baltic States

By Antanas Tubelis on Monday, April 26, 2021

Relations between Russia and NATO are becoming worse. In the near future, the situation can become quite dangerous. Since the Baltic States are the main NATO bridgeheads, deterioration of the situation will lead to the most negative consequences for the population of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The United States is committed to rebuilding and mobilizing NATO. This requires an external enemy. Washington also needs an external enemy to consolidate American…
